  He said that the state was planning to build a Film Village, which would be world-class and lauded the role that government was playing in the film industry

  “We are proud of the role of Anambra State in the value chain within the film industry. Anambra State has script writers, actors, producers and marketers,” Adinuba said.

  President AGN, Mr Rollas Ejezie, said that their reason for the visit was to seek the state government’s support in discovering and empowering youths with aptitude and interest in the entertainment industry.
